Rivers  State  Governor,  Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that his administration will support  the  State Police  Command  to fight crime across  the  state.
Inaugurating  the  state  Traffic  Decongestion  Committee at the  State Police  Command  Headquarters on Tuesday in Port Harcourt,  Governor  Wike  said  that  his administration  will  provide logistics support  to the  police to carry  out  their key functions.
He commended  the  State  Police  Command  for setting  up  the  Traffic  Decongestion  Committee  which would ease traffic  in Port Harcourt  and improve  the  productivity  of the  residents.
Governor  Wike  said : “Our administration will work  with  the  state  police  command  to reduce  the  level  of  crime in the state  and improve  the  free flow of  traffic.
“We shall release  vehicles  to the Police  Command  to aid their work in the state.  The government  will also  support members of the committee on their welfare  to ensure  that  they perform  their  duties diligently “.
The governor charged the members of the Traffic  Decongestion Committee  to desist  from  sharp practices as he had to disband  the  state  TIMARIV  because  they became  a  burden to  the residents  of the state.
Earlier,  Rivers State Police  Commissioner,  Chris  Ezike  stated that  the  Traffic Decongestion  Committee was set up to address the challenges  associated  with  traffic  which has led to the loss of  valuable  man hours.
He said  that  the “Operation  Keep Moving ” programme  to be implemented  by the committee  will improve  vehicular  flow, which  will in turn enhance  traffic, security  and improve  the  living  condition of  the  people.
Ezike said that the police command  has interfaced with all relevant  stakeholders,  especially,  the Army,  Road Safety and Road Unions to ensure  the success  of  the  programme.
The police  commissioner  commended Governor  Wike  for initiating the  repairs of the Eleme -Onne  road, which he said  will help security  agencies  combat crime  in the area.
